Owner's Manuals & Elec. Schematics

PIRANA JOE Member Posts: 7
When will Owner's manuals be available?  I need the electrical schematic for the helm of my 2005 SunDeck (SD237).  Someone tried, unsuccessfully, to hot wire my boats and several wires were disconnected.  I need to know how to reconnect the two relay modules. I cannot bring to dealer because the boat is on a lift and cannot be started until wiring is re-connected.

    The Owner's manual that I received with my 2012 SD237 was nothing more than general Maintenance and Safety recommendations and was not specific to my boat model.  The Mercury/Mercruiser Owners Manual than came with the engine/drive system that was installed was very good with information.
    I would strongly recommend you find the Hurricane Dealer closest to you and make friends, especially if you need to order replacement parts unique to the boat.

    The Hurricane Owners manual is available for download from this site. It is generic for all their boats, and will be totally worthless for what you are looking for. What you probably need is the rigging guide for whatever motor you have. It will have much more detail about electrical connections to the relays and gauges. I know many of the Yamaha outboard rigging manuals are available for download online. Don't know about other outboard or I/O engines.

    FYI I just sent an e mail to Terri Gipson who is the Customer service manager for hurricane and suggested they put the electrical schematic on this website and include it in the manuals for new boats. She said she passed it on to the sales people ??? (I didn't understand since she is the Cusomer service rep.)
    We'll see how much they really do care about the customer after the sale. This should be a fairly easy and inexpensive thing to do since they must have the schematics to build the boats (At least I certainly hope so !!

    I just purchased a used 2006 FD218RE from a private party.  The person I bought it from could not find the owners manual.  Anyone know how I can get an owners manual for a 2006 FD218RE?

    @donmat... we're working on getting things like wiring diagrams loaded on the website when it relaunches at the end of this year. In the meantime, Terri can email that info to you. 

    @jblass ... just shoot me an email to and I'll send you a PDF of the owner's manual.

    I need a manual for a 2012 Sundeck 220 OB to understand the helm switches, trim gauge, live well, running lights, etc.

    Has anyone received the owners manual after posting on here?  I have a 2005 217SD and would like to find out what the helm switches do as well.  Thanks

    I also would like to know what the switches on my 2014 do, as in what has to be on/off to crank my ob.  There is a master switch, does this have to be on before anything else will operate??

    None of these switches, including the Master Power switch need to be on to operate your engine.

    Hi,    Does anyone have an address or e-mail for a customer service / Quality Manager at Hurricane Boats?    I have had so many quality issues with my boat, I really need to contact someone in writing.

    Thank you
